Since 2016, the amount allocated to CJPPD for the BVP has seen a constant decline and has prevented us from providing substantial assistance to entities in need of the subsidy. Being that individual jurisdictions can still apply for funds, CJJPD encourages those in need of these funds to pursue them individually and is open to providing assistance/insight through the application process.
If your jurisdiction wants to pursue these funds further, here are the links to the OJP site regarding the funding and the application process.
